This week, Reception have joined the rest of the school in participating in Spirituality Week. The focus for this week has been Walking with Jesus.
On Monday, the class wrote prayers for the children in Year 5 and gave them to them in the afternoon.
On Tuesday, the children took part in a beautiful, prayerful activity called Praying in Colour. We have never seen the Reception children so quiet and reflective!
On Wednesday, the class went on a walk around the field. They were encouraged to be silent and ‘notice’ God’s creation all around them. The children were asked: What can you hear? What can you smell? What can you see? The class finished with some time in the peace garden, where they were delighted to find that a pair of blue tits had built their nest in one of the bird boxes. They were amazed to see how frequently they brought back food for their young!
On Thursday, Reception took part in the wonderful prayer stations led by Year 5.
On Friday, the class took part in a guided meditation sessions, focussed on meeting Jesus. The children were so impressive doing this and one child even fell asleep!
We are looking forward to seeing you at the Pentecost Celebration next week!
Have a lovely weekend,
The Reception Team
